Black Rhino Reiner

The time has come to sell my old saddle and focus on my new horse. Djinn and Ahab, the horses my saddle fit, have both dropped off the twig, and this beautiful saddle is just sitting here, gathering dust.

It is not a very well-known saddle; it is a black Rhino built by Dave Genadek of About the Horse. It is his #2 tree, and is a Reiner with a 15" seat. Here is what he says about the #2 bars:

Our number 2 bar is designed for a horse with a well sprung rib cage and a gentle
curve to the top line. We once called this our Arab bar. It has more twist and
rock than the #1 bar. (#1 is what he calls his Quarter horse bars).

Here is a link to his website:

About The Horse Home Page

And here is the saddle:

It is an older saddle, built in November of 1999, and it weighs about 33#. I used it every time I rode, both on my Arabian and on my Percheron, and it is so comfortable you totally forget it is even there.

Anyway, I haven't sat in it since Ahab left, which was several years ago now, and it is driving DH crazy just sitting there in the living room, so... it is for sale.

PM me for contact information...

Why yes, as a matter of fact, it is! I truly love this saddle, but there is no way it will comfortably fit my Haflinger. I thought of changing horses... but now I like my Haflinger more. I think.

Would you mind sending me the serial number? It tells seat size, tree, etc., in it's numbers. I'm looking for one for a Quarter horse mare. I have a haflinger too, but after much searching, have a Cashel Trail (made by Martin saddlery) that fits his short back and wide shoulders very well.

On the Saddle it reads: RE 2 3515R PL

that is on the little tag that can keep the latigo end, right below this awesome rhino head with red eyes... I love it!

...and on the paperwork, it reads:

RE2 3.5 15R PL 1999-32

Reiner #2 Tree 15" Seat

I am looking for something similar with a #3 tree, and a 16inch seat.


it's lovely. Can I inquire as to how much you are asking?

Sure tinyliny... I asked $1500.00 After looking at Dave's site and talking to a dealer or two, I think it is actually worth more, but realistically, I don't think it will bring more. But I am not a good tack-trader: I may have priced it wrong.

I think that's fair.


Like I said, if it were larger, I'd consider it.
